Pillowcase Dress

I made several of these for Emmie earlier this year.  A few of them were “fall-ish” enough for me to put a long sleeve tee under and use again.  When she gets a little bit bigger, I plan on letting her use them for shirts instead of dresses with some leggings on bottom.  I’ve seen “big girls”(1st-2nd grade) wearing them like that and it was adorable!  Anyway, I’ve had several people ask me how I did it.  Well, I can’t take much credit it, actually.  A friend of mine had one for her little girl that I loved…so I got online and searched for a how-to guide.  Here’s the link I found.  It’s REALLY specific and easy.  So…GOOD LUCK!!


Handprint Lillies

What you need: decorative paper, pen, scissors, pipe cleaner or drinking straw, tape, adorable tiny hand

How-To:  Trace your child’s hand on the paper and cut out.  Gently curl each of the fingers around the pen.  Roll the palm of the paper hand into a cone, with fingers curled out.  Insert straw or pipe cleaner into center of flower and secure with tape.  Add paper leaves, if desired. 

These are SO cute…and look great as one alone in a bud vase OR as a bunch in a big flower vase!

These are a few of my favorite things…
